I have the same problem. After going back to the opticians a few times, the solution I ended with was progressives that are great for long and middle distance (so good for driving and using the screen) but no use for reading or close-up work. For close-up I take my glasses off and hold the book/work a bit closer than I would have to with properly corrected vision.

I agree that no content from a public repo can be trusted, but at the moment I only use Git to pull from trusted private repos (which is probably a significant use case for people who are using Git in the workplace). That means yes, I need to update my Git client, but I don't need to sweat that I might already have been compromised by this vulnerability.

1. Concorde wasn't discontinued due to passenger safety risks.

[citation needed]

Because of the low fleet flight hours, that one accident gave it the worst safety record of that generation of aircraft. It was retired because it would have been too expensive to make it safe.

No skis take rocks like rental skis!
